Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Wireless downloading vs Ethernet cable downloading

Dudley - I'm a mac guy too and I've been downloading wirelessly for some time now with no appreciable loss of speed from being cable connected. My download speeds are usually pretty good - depending on time of day, the site I'm using, and all the other usual suspects. What you do have to watch out for is interference from your other devices. my router was behaving erratically, frequently losing contact with the modem. After some head scratching I tracked down the problem to the fact that I'd put a cordless phone base too near the router. Moved the phone base - problem solved. Any chance it's a similar issue for you?

I don't think there is anything like that in my situation , but I will try to look for non-obvious things that may be confusing the router . Thank you RTWS .

I recently got an iMac and I'm still using my old linksys router and haven't had any problems with download speeds or disconnects. I've always used wireless due to the physical location of my cable modem and found my speeds generally top off at around 1.5MB/sec, not too bad if you ask me.
